Satire

Sometimes people get asked to sell out. You get some newager praising your "wisdom", offering you money... Calling you "Elder" even though you're young, or not a ceremonial person...

The best satire is almost indistinguishable from the real thing. Almost ;)


Indian Names for Sale! - "Need a plastic Shaman? Look no more! We got you! Native spirituality for sale!! come one come all!" (Hint, you may recognize these Dakota guys from the Wolfpack Auditions)


Clarence Two Toes Sells Out. 
(Language Note - Ojibway/Metis Clarence is fond of the F-word and some mature subject matter)
A Mile In My Moccassins: EP#3 The Conference Trail
A Mile in My Moccasins: EP#4 Running From Running Deer
A Mile In My Moccassins: EP#5 Big Fat White Bear ... Clarence realizes there are consequences to selling out. Ooops.


Plastic Shaman Naturally Native Clip - from the NDN-made indie film "Naturally Native".  Three sisters want to start a business... but the people with the money have other ideas of how they could use the Native women... As tokens to "legitimize" their fraud.

This video does not directly address the frauds, but simply tells the story of White Buffalo Calf Woman. I think it's good to have this here, as so many newagers are trying to exploit the WBCW story.

Arvol Lookinghorse tells the story of White Buffalo Calf Woman, and discusses the appearance of white animals in recent years. White Buffalo Calf Woman is a black-haired woman, and the prophecy is that she will return as a white buffalo calf.

You may notice that there is no mention of blonde, white women anywhere in the prophecies.

Time to stop pretending Kiesha Crowther Little Grandmother 

- A response to Crowther's recent claims that she never really claimed to be leading NDN ceremonies... and that she never really claimed to be representing Native ways... combined with Crowther's own words, pictures from her appearances, and suggestions for what Crowther could do now that the truth has come out.

*** Note: Contains images of the dead from the Wounded Knee Massacre ***

Kiesha Crowther (Updated) Alternative Lifestyles of the Rich & Fraudulent

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYy0xVdPU6Q

This updated version has the inipi footage removed. That section now has a flying eagle, and images of the land and cemetery at Wounded Knee (modern pictures, no bodies or massacre images). At the end is the AIMSB flyer for the upcoming protest in Palm Springs.

Video documents some of Crowther's earnings from her pretendian workshops, and contrasts Crowther's expensive new Santa Fe home with conditions on Pine Ridge. This video is a collaborative effort by a number of Indigenous activists and supporters, and is being mirrored widely so it cannot be taken down. It is copyleft and reproduction is encouraged. Posters are asked to include this statement:

"An indigenous spiritual elder is known for his or her humility. He or she sacrifices EVERYTHING for the good of the people and lives a humble existence. I too challenge Mrs. Crowther to give ALL of her ill-gotten gains from her Feb 4-5 workshop to the people of the Pine Ridge, Rosebud & Cheyenne River reservations. She claims to be their shaman, so she knows it is her OBLIGATION to put her people first before her own needs. I also challenge her to bring any lawsuits against me to TRIBAL court."

Making a Noise : Why Natives Should Protest Kiesha Crowther

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyolOPbu_go

by wyomingoutdoorsman | Feb 25, 2011 |

"The purpose of this video is to motivate people to protest Kiesha Crowther aka Little Grandmother. She is a charlatan. She has no compassion for Native people and she is not concerned that she is harming future generations by confusing authentic traditions with imitation rituals and non-Indian occult practices in an offensive and harmful pseudo-religious hodgepodge. Her activities create a momentous obstacle in the struggle of traditional people for mainstream recognition of our legitimate political, legal and spiritual concerns. She is doing great harm to Native peoples because her bogus teachings supplant Native values of cooperation, generosity, sharing, honesty, and courage with vapid, narcissistic New Age self-centered values."

*** NOTE - video includes a brief but very clear image of the dead from one of the massacres ***

James Ray, White Shamanism and Death http://youtu.be/tmqEXfZsRCc

This one is a collaborative effort by a number of groups and individuals

Includes quotes from Chief Arvol Looking Horse regarding the protocols around Inipi and the other Seven Sacred Rites, as well as testimony and photos from the James Ray DeathLodge trial. Main testimony is from Debbie Mercer, one of the Angel Valley employees who witnessed the death lodge, and tried to help the victims.  Well... after she went a long time without helping, and helped build the airtight deathtent.

And on a lighter note, more satire:

Shamanic New Age Seminar! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Db1-nK7yWRA

by Chuquai Billy and friends

Little Grand What? Little Grand Who? What happens when an NDN checks out a shamanic circle in England. (Run, Chuquai, RUN!!!)

Incident at Journeyshttp://youtu.be/wGd-ZE4e93E

Video blog by Dallas Goldtooth of the 1491s

Appropriators often do what they do because NDNs and their cultures are unreal to them. They tend to assume that no NDNs will find out about their offenses. Once upon a time,  some NDNs walked in to a store...

I just wanted to say that last night on a local cable station---uwtv---they showed White Shamans and Plastic Medicine Men. It was an excellent video. The arrogance of the fakes was something else. They proclaimed out of one side of their mouths that they were not copying Natives, and then turned around and did fake Native songs, sweats, vision quests etc. Really worth watching.
